Bath Salts Tutorial

Bath Salts are a great addition to a bath after a long day. Whether it be a stressful day or a physically demanding day. The great thing about this recipe is that most of the ingredients can be found at your local grocery.

Recipe for Bath Salts

Ingredients:

2 Cups Epsoak Epsom Salt 2 Lbs – 100% Pure Magnesium Sulfate, Made in USA

2 cups coarse sea salt or Morton Salt Kosher Salt, 3 lbs

1 scoop Meyenberg Whole Powdered Goat Milk, Vitamin D, 12 Ounce

½ cup Arm & Hammer Baking Soda, 5 Lbs

Scent (essential oils or fragrance oils)

Colorant (lakes preferred) if using mica add polysorbate 80

 

Instructions:

Mix it all together. Very simple. The colorant and scent are your preference. If m

aking it for someone else remember you cannot smell the scent nearly as well as someone else. Don’t overdo it.

If using mica, it may stick to the sides of the tub if not used with polysorbate 80. The polysorbate allows oil based and water based to mix. Mica is oil based and will float on top of the water, leaving a ring.

Do not store in glass for an extended amount of time. A chemical reaction happens between the baking soda and essential oils that will expand. I takes awhile but I have heard of glass jars exploding so to be on the safe side store in plastic or use within a month.

Refreshing Bath Bomb

These are great for after a workout or a long sweaty day. When the biggest organ in your body (your skin) needs a refresh, a nice soak with this bomb can go a long way. For all of you who are starting a new fitness regime this at the end of a workout may be just the motivation you need to sweat your butt off.

Notice that I did not add and fragrance oils or colorants. After all that sweating I would not want to add anything “pretty” just functional, no added stuff you don’t need just the refreshing awesomeness.

Instructions
  1. Melt coconut oil. You can use a double boiler a microwave or a crock pot. While this is melting you can move to step 2. If using a microwave do 30 second bursts so as not to scorch and stir in between. Microwaves do not heat evenly and are not prefered.
  2. Mix dry ingredients. I like to sift them through the strainer so I don’t get chunks. Make sure it is thoroughly mixed so you don’t get pockets of one ingredient.img_0891
  3. Mix wet ingredients. I like to put them in a small spray bottle so i can evenly disperse liquids. Make sure they are thoroughly mixed first. Once they are all mixed work quickly because if the coconut oil cools it will be solid again.
  4. Spray dry ingredients. While spraying the dry mixture mix it thoroughly. I find it is easier to mix with my hands which i why i use the gloves. It may fizz slightly and that needs to be snuffed out quickly. Make sure to disperse liquid as evenly as possible. It will help with molding later.
  5. For silicone mold you want to use more than you would regularly (right hand picture above) notice how the mixture looks in the bowl, not nearly as powdery. For the muffin bomb I put it in the spherical mold then put the sphere in a cupcake liner. Molding the cupcake bath bomb
  6. Then flip it and walk away. it will take about an hour to sink down into the silicone cupcake liner. This has taken me awhile to get right so it may not work the first time. If it doesn’t work then next time use more moisture. Don’t use too much or it will overly squish.

After about a day you can wrap them or use them whichever you prefer. I hope you enjoy your Refreshing after workout bath bomb. If you have any questions feel free to comment or if you are shy we have a contact page as well.
